We've been in our new house for one month and one day, and as of last night at 10pm, my office, my "Foto Hut" is now up and running. We had to paint the room (3 coats of primer alone just to cover the previous owner's two-tone blues) and then began the task of reconstructing my desk, file cabinet and bookshelves, and after that, it was time to disperse the contents of about ten boxes full of interesting office things: photo books and magazines, binders of negatives, stacks of prints, Indiana Jones action figures, rocks, sheets of felt, bags of yarn, dozens of pens, markers, a bendable Kermit the Frog, our Jerry Garcia doll... And now, thankfully, the "Foto Hut" is put together and ready for me to get down to business, or at least something that resembles it, and to commemorate the event, I reopened my Etsy shop today and sincerely hope to add new items very soon. It's been long and harshly neglected ever since we put our house up for sale and began the whole arduous real estate process, but now that we're good and settled, I hope to make up for it.
So what's up with the corn on the cob thingies? I don't know. I'm obsessed with my Polaroid SLR 680 and can't set the table without placing my camera and new close-up filters next to my plate. There's just something so special about Polaroid. The two things I've nailed down are the instant gratification and the colors. The tactile object in my hands and the kooky Polaroid smell aren't half bad either. I also love corn on the cob.
